resurrection

19 Jul

Very truly, I tell you, anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life, and does not come under judgment, but has passed from death to life. “Very truly, I tell you, the hour is coming, and is now here, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. For just as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself; and he has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of Man. Do not be astonished at this; for the hour is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and will come out—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation. (John 5:24-29, NRSV)

We talk about the resurrection to eternal life. Like eternal life is something we wait for…

But notice here in John that all people will be resurrected!

Those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of condemnation.

So we will all be resurrected but which will we get?

According to John here if you hear the voice of God and believe it you will do good and will get life, but otherwise, you will get condemnation.

So prepare for the resurrection!
